Lyrics

Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white,
All are precious in His sight,
Jesus loves the little children of the world.

Jesus died for all the children,
All the children of the world;
Red and yellow, black and white,
They are precious in his sight;
Jesus died the little children of the world.

Jesus rose for all the children,
All the children of the world;
Red and yellow, black and white,
They are precious in his sight;
Jesus rose the little children of the world.

Jesus lives for all the children,
All the children of the world;
Red and yellow, black and white,
They are precious in his sight;
Jesus lives for all the children of the world.

Jesus wants the little children,
To be careful what they do;
Honor father, mother dear,
Keep their hearts so full of cheer;
Then He’ll take them home to glory by and by.
